Could you imagine if science was actually governed by public opinion
Imagine having to reject evolution because you’re a scientist in Texas

#THANK YOU#oh my god I’ve seen so many people on my dash freaking out that pluto is a planet again and it’s like uhh NO#it was just a vote by a bunch of civilians NOT a decision by scientists!#I was literally grinding my teeth every time I saw a ‘pluto is a planet’ post I came this close to commenting#and seriously I really really don’t get why people are so hung up about pluto being called a dwarf planet it’s not like there’s any shame it it it’s just a term for classifying objects in our solar system#and pluto fits a lot better with the kuiper belt objects composition-wise than any of the planets#cause we have the inner terrestrial-metallic-bodies#the gas giants#and then pluto#a weird icy outlier#like no#it makes much more sense to put it among the other icy kuiper belt objects#AND FOR FUCK’S SAKE WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ‘PRESTIGE’ THAT COMES WITH BEING CALLED A PLANET WHAT YOU’RE DOING WHEN YOU DO THAT IS BELITTLING ALL THE OTHER FASCINATING OBJECTS IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM DON’T DO THAT EVERYTHING IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM IS SO COOL IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT IT’S CALLED excellent tags (x)

Dear every person who says that a mental illness is not
a valid reason for not being able to attend school normally,

Say that to the counselor, the school nurse, the paramedics,
and the friend who walked me to the office on the day of my overdose.
Say that to the kids who saw me sleep through first and second period.
Say that to the boy who sleeps in every class.

Tell that to my teacher who had to talk me out
of suicide on a school night.
Tell that to my bio teacher who saw
me break down during a suicide prevention assembly.
Tell that to the housemates who have heard
me call the suicide hotlines.
Tell that to my freshman English teacher who tells
me I look so alive now in comparison to
how dead I looked freshman year.

Say that to any friend who has had to talk me out of suicide.
Say that to any friend who has had to calm me down
after an anxiety attack.
Say that to every friend and follower that has
come to me with thoughts of suicide.

Tell that to the kids who have failing grades because
they can’t focus, the ones who can’t make it through
a school night without having an anxiety attack,
the kids who sleep right when they get home and
straight on until morning, the ones who
have more breakdowns a day than meals a day,
the ones who have spent more time staring
at hospital walls than school hallways.

Tell that to the kids who cry every night.

Tell that to the teenagers in psychiatric wards and treatment centers.
Tell that to the family of someone who has just committed suicide.

Tell them that school is more important than their sanity.

Let’s be clear on something. The fat kid’s problem isn’t being fat. It’s being HATED for being fat. It’s being targeted by everything from bullies and parents (perhaps unwittingly, because yeah, it was done to me and I was a fat kid) doing abusive things to him to get him thin to the First Lady spearheading a campaign that pushes forward the agenda to increase stigma against fat children by making sure they get labeled as being unhealthy right off the bat and assumed to be eating nothing but “junk food”.

And all the while, any thin kids who may be eating nothing but “junk food” are handwaved away, because if they’re thin they must be healthy and don’t need any nutritional intervention, right? Any fat kids who are actually getting only occasional meals and live in poverty and have dire food insecurity in their lives are assumed not even to exist or even told it might be good for them to miss meals because they’re fat.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

"The reality is that the government was not reducing the amount of money devoted to management of the urban poor. It was radically altering what the funds would be used for. The dramatic shift toward punitiveness resulted in a massive reallocation for public resources. By 1996, the penal budget doubled the amount that had been allocated to AFDC or food stamps."
